If you have never attended an A-meet but plan to try one out this spring, keep an eye on the News section of the Orienteering USA website (under Events) for event rebate coupons with which you can save up to $20 per adult competitor (juniors already receive a reduced entry fee). You don't need this coupon when you register for an event; you send it in after the event for a rebate from Orienteering USA.
Rebate coupons are already posted for the Flying Pig and U.S. Individual Championships A-meets, but will be available later for the West Point A-meet and the Western Mass 5-Day, which are a bit closer to home.
Be sure to check out this savings opportunity if you've been orienteering for awhile but have never been a competitor in an A-meet.
